Do you read the instructions when putting together a bookshelf, installing a new WordPress theme, putting together a new Playmobil set, or when installing a plugin for your blog?
I am interested in how people do things – do you follow the step by step instructions? Or do you dive in and figure it out through trial and error?
The reason I ask is that recently I helped a couple of people with problems they were having with their WordPress themes. The issues were related to the themes use of custom fields. If the custom fields were not used correctly then the main page content wouldn’t look right.
